I recently read an article about the UN’s Childrens Rights Act provided by the Home School Legal Defense Association, of which I am a member. Since I am a reader, researcher, home schooler, parent, and all around curious person I did a little research of my own. What I learned is truly terrifying and should give all of us as parents pause to think. It matters not whether you choose to home school your children, it has to do with your rights and responsibilities as a parent to your children. Please read with your eyes wide open.
Here are some excerpts from HSLDA before I have you read what the UN has to say……………
What Can We Expect under
an Obama Administration?
We do know that the Democratic Party has an official position of supporting public education. The National Education Association (NEA), which is the national teachers union, is a major supporter of the Democratic Party. We KNOW that the NEA’s position is that every child should be either taught by a certified teacher or supervised by one. Additionally, their position is that the curriculum used by all homeschoolers should be approved BY THE STATE, and children should ONLY be able to continue to be homeschooled based upon systematic evaluation BY THE STATE.
It is important to remember that under the United States Constitution, the federal government has no authority over private and home education. This is not to say that they will not attempt to exercise authority in these areas. And whenever private educators accept grants and benefits, there are conditions to receiving those benefits, including being subject to regulation…………
Now, for those of us that want LESS government, not more, that is of course bad enough…..BUT here is the thing that should put fear in every parents heart.
“An immediate concern to watch is the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Although we do not know what Barack Obama’s specific position on the treaty is, we know that future Vice President Joe Biden has publicly indicated that this UN Convention should be ratified by the United States.
It does appear that we will soon have the challenge of keeping the UN Convention from being ratified by the U.S. Senate, ratification requiring a two-thirds majority to pass.
Should the UN Convention be ratified, it would impose the United Nation’s view of children’s rights on America. Under the U.S. Constitution, treaties become the Supreme Law of the land, taking precedent over state laws and state supreme court decisions.
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is not in the best interest of parents or children, as it would undermine the parental authority that our laws currently recognize. For further information on the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child visit ParentalRights.org.
I suggest you go and check out those parental rights. See what the UN wants for our children…for parents to be nothing more then caregivers. That we as families would have state assigned “guardians” to watch over us and make sure we are doing the right thing for our children according to the state. As a mother, it breaks my heart to read what the UN considers in the best interest of the child. Will we as parents, grandparents, and family stand by while we lose our children to a secular and humanist world? Be vigilant, take the time to investigate for yourself, keep your eyes open. Sometimes the world draws a line in the sand….and there is a decision to make. The majority of the time “the world” is complacent. Apathy is a way of life. Don’t be part of “the world”. Stand firm and strong at that line in the sand.
